Chase looked up and smiled. "Look who it is! Devon and my sweet little niece!" He quickly crossed the rooms and wiggled his fingers at Alyssa. Alyssa smiled shyly and pulled back against Devon's shoulder.
"So? How's it go with the tattoo-lady?" Devon asked. "Have you seen her again?"
Chase smiled dreamily. "Not yet, but I'm definitely to see her again..."
Michelle smacked her mouth shut, "But I am a freshman," she said, mildly confused.
Farrah rolled her eyes. "Yeah, but there's no need to act like it," she said scornfully.
"Come on, girls!" Joan Alto called out as she jogged across the field.
Arthur scoffed. If Nick was interested in the debate club, he'd eat his socks!
"Come on, let's get to work," Eva said, pulling out her notebook.
"So, this week we're the Negative team for the topic, 'Parents should be allowed to choose their baby's gender',"Eva said, reading off the question. She tapped her pencil against her lip. "I've heard that you if you eat apples, you're more likely to have boys..." she mused.
Nick smothered a burst of a laugh. "Oh man!" Putting on a straight face, he cleared his throat, "Sorry," he said, looking down at the table.
Arturo shot him a nasty look, shaking his head. "So, we should start by discussing why parents aren't allowed to choose the gender..."
"You looked so hot out there, baby!" Farrah said as she ran her hands over his back.
"No, you look so hot in that uniform!" he said, kissing him again. "You coming over to my place tonight again?" he asked.
"Uh... yeah!" Farrah said eagerly.
"That's our new girl, Farrah Black," Joan bragged.
"Black?" he asked, recognizing her. "Eva Black's little sister?"
Joan shrugged, "Who cares?" she said negligently.
"Umm... excuse me for a moment," she said, standing up quickly.
Eva was reeling. Nathaniel Wolff had been looking for her? She shook her head slightly. "How did you even find me?" she asked.
Nathaniel shrugged nonchalantly, "This is where the Debate Club meets, right?"
He knew that she was in the debate club? "Wait? So why did you need to find me?" she asked in confusion.
He told her about what he saw after the practice. "..I just thought you might want to talk to your sister about her reputation."
"Just a minute," she told him, turning back to Nathaniel.
"Yeah, no problem," Nathaniel said.
Eva glanced at her friend sharply. "Artie! Don't be mean!"
"What?!" Arturo exclaimed defensively.
Eva just shook her head.
"I'll drop you off on my way home," Amelia Landgraab told Arturo.
"Why don't we all go together?" Arturo asked, looking between Nick and Eva.
Nick waited patiently as she said her goodbyes.
"Yeah, yeah," he said, "I'm coming..."
Eva smiled and lifted her face up to the night sky. "It is! I love it!"
Nick smiled, "My pleasure," he said.
"Well, I hope you enjoyed the Debate Club," Eva said as she turned to go inside.
"Me, too," Jason grinned as she leaned down and began kissing him.
"So you missed me, huh?" Sandra asked saucily.
Chase nodded. "I should probably tell you that I just a divorce..." he said slowly, starting to explain his emotional baggage.
